Own the stage in this fabulously fun sequined one shoulder dress from Double Platinum! Dress features an asymmetrical neckline with double crisscross shoulder straps. Attached leotard is nylon/spandex. Sequin color and order may vary.
This looks so cute, and I was looking forward to using it, but it runs VERY small. Another reviewer mentioned that the leotard pulls down the front of the dress and this is true. Also because it runs small, it is very short. Lastly just taking it out of the package resulted in sequins everywhere. I obviously returned this item.
I was the 3rd costumer brought in to a production of La Cage Aux Folles. Only 3 weeks til opening and I had to find 8 matching costumes for more than one dance number. (Mind you, 5 of my 8 are men...I needed something large enough for a 5'10" man!) These are our opening number and the costumes they were intermittently throughout the show. They are amazing on stage! Our director calls them the flame dresses. The one complaint I have is the neckline folds a little when on; I think the leotard pulls from the neckline down. But you can't see it on stage. over all, gorgeous!
There are clear thread strings left uncut on the costume that if pulled by mistake (someone thought it was a hair) unravel a whole row of sequins.
Check costume thoroughly before assigning to students.
They really are beautiful and catch the light on stage!
It is comfortable and has a build in leotard, but like any other sequined thing it's kind of itchy under the arm pits. And I found that when I was onstage dancing in it (my teacher go this costume for our jazz class recital) and the sequins on the bottom of the dress sometimes caught on the sequins in the torso. That happened in the middle of my dance and I couldn't do anything about it so it just stayed like that!
Got these costumes and they will look great on stage, but the sizing was a problem. In another costume by this same company, the costumes ran small so we ordered the larger size in this one since the sizing chart was the same. When we got these in they were quite a bit larger for the sizing in comparison to the other costume (N7052). When fitted to the dress that is appropriate, the unitard was quite small and uncomfortable. Sequins fall off easy and several are missing right out of the bag. You get what you pay for...
